An articulation agreement is an officially approved agreement that matches coursework between schools/institutions. These are designed to help students make a smooth transition when transferring with a CXC CAPE qualification to a degree-granting institution.
CXC has been working with institutions which attract Caribbean students to establish articulation agreements. Below are schools with which CXC has agreements:
- Berkeley College
- University of South Florida
- Monroe College
- Oglethorpe University
- Johnson and Wales
Some schools do not do articulation agreements, but have published CAPE equivalency charts to show their credits for CAPE courses. Some of the schools which have published CAPE equivalency charts are listed below:
- University of Michigan-Flint
- University of Arkansas
- University of Toronto
- St Leo University
- Florida Institute of Technology
- Savannah College of Art and Design
- University of New England
What universities say about CAPE
“We feel that students who have achieved strong results in their CAPE Units 1 and 2 examinations are well prepared for entry to McGill University, for advanced standing credits and exemptions towards our degree programmes and for successful studies with us.”
Katherine Mayhew, Senior Admissions Officer, McGill University.
“If you are taking CAPE Unit 2 level exams and score Grades I and II on any of the following subjects, and you are admitted to AU and join our global community, you will receive advanced standing AND credits for UA level classes….We at AU value CAPE and the education that you have received at home…”
Evelyn Levinson, Director of International Admissions at American University.
“SUNY Plattsburgh has been awarding transfer credit for successful completion of CAPE for several years. Students with satisfactory CAPE results enter with advanced standing which enables them to complete their bachelor’s degrees in three (3) years. The content of the CAPE examination appears to be comparable in content and intensity to introductory-level courses in various disciplines within our course offerings.”
Mrs. Jacqueline “Jackie” Girard Vogl, Assistant Vice President, International Enrollment Management.
